Another first class car !!! :to_become_senile:  The wheels look as cool as the paint job. Do thingies run interiors? This car reminds me of the late 60's when I first saw Banshees run on a track. :)

Track test results: Could not have been better, I am very pleased with it :good: :sun_bespectacled:

Handles fine, great speed, acceleration, and brakes, a pleasure to drive. Very smooth.

Havlicek motor is another home-run, and runs absolute dead cold.

 

Red Valentine tested it about a dozen laps also, he is my witness :)

 

No tuning or tweaking of any kind was needed. I think we deslotted it maybe one time after many laps.

My job here is done :dance3:

What a unique and cool car Pablo.  Hat's off for thinking way outside the box, and then having the know-how to pull it off!
